For the home’s interiors, the architects envisioned a touch of the rustic and the organic, to counterbalance the clean white lines of the contemporary architectural style
in faux rattan line the infinity pool facing the view, while a leaf-shaped lounger and a pair of statuesque yucca trees in terracotta pots offer an organic touch to the covered patio. Contemporary black chairs with feminine lines compliment the heavy and masculine wooden dining table. Opposite, sit metallic cup-shaped stools at the bar.
For a refreshing visual interest in the living room, the designers chose an unobtrusive pair of sculptures on the mantelpiece and a taller one resembling a tree on the staircase landing. In the centre of the room, reflective round coffee tables are echoed by three rounded red armchairs that offer a subtle visual focus.
Beyond all this however, the true beauty of Jardim and Guedes’ architecture and interior design in this project lies in their acknowledgement that nothing can ever compare to the surrounding serene landscape. By framing these magnificent blue vistas throughout the home, from the grand rooms for entertaining to the intimate bedrooms and baths, they ensure that the greatest artist of all—mother Nature— remains on permanent display.
